I'd like to find out if anyone knows of a report or utility I can use to dump out every/all the settings/toggles in place that are found under Windows' Control Panel > Internet Options? (The same applet you find under IE > Tools > Internet Options. In this UI, as you all probably know, you have 5-7 tabs describing/controlling various and sundry features in each category, for instance the various "Security" zones. As it is now, I find I have to take several screenshots of each panel's offerings as I scroll down each. Very cumbersome and sometime prone to error (when I miss one by scrolling past it...)

If I could find such a utility or built in feature of Windows, it would then be easy enough then to compare these settings/toggles from one computer to another. For example, as we compare and try to figure out why this computer's IE works and this other one's IE doesn't.  And, I realize it's not always IE's fault that something doesn't work but you have to start somewhere.

GPO doesn't help because all it reports is "Not configured".  The registry was my next choice but, gad, it's a wasteland in there!

I've never run across a report or software utility to dump these settings and features out.  Of course, everyone loves "simple".  I'm in that same room.

Thank you all kindly for any advice.
